We enjoyed everything- the sandwich with the truffle was yummy, but I think my favorite was the polenta. And yea- that artichoke serving was just plain silly....

Well...we kinds missed that this visit. OOPS. Have to get 2 when I go in November!

Ellen - I about snorted water out my nose at the pic you posted to Shanna to introduce Kara! I also love all the pics of the goodies in the cases! It looks very similar to the antipasta tray at Palo! MMMMMM.......

I love the wine bottle chandeliers! Too perfect for a wine bar!
That's good! That pic cracks me up, too- I wish I hadn't been laughing so hard when I took it!

It did have alot of Palo type stuff- but I think it had even more, in some ways. Really think it's a good place, glad we got to check it out.

Loving Your TR. I remember doing some road trips with the "gals" when I was (much) younger, so thanks for bringing those memories back.

Awww...the Gator fans were FUN!



And how come I thought we were all taking a goofy picture in every photo???

I totally blame the artichoke lunch!!

So....after Rose & Crown (which I have to say, we have ALWAYS had a great time in- remember this one??)



click to play-


What was Cammie doing at the end of that little movie...HMMMM?????

Anywho.....then we went to see...



And we met a nice photographer...



Who took about 100 photos for us with our cameras before we went back to see the flowers....



GAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!



So how DID they smell, Joanie??



Most definitely, it was time for a break! So we skipped over to the BIG balcony at BCV. For a little rehearsal for America's Got Talent (and OMG- did anyone see that the other night with the Goth kid who sang an aria?? BLEW MY MIND!! Similar to this-)



Clearly, SOME are more talented than OTHERS-



I texted Lonnie, and told her we were taking a break- she said Good Idea! And she and Pam rejoined us, with Lonnie showing off her purchases-







Uh-oh....someone else likes what she sees....



Yes, Kara, you look cute in the hat too, but you have to give it back now...



Uh-oh!



Not to worry, they worked out an amicable custody agreement. Let's celebrate!



Back soon, I hope -

After all that celebrating, we were actually starting to get...HUNGRY! Can you IMAGINE! Actually going to eat more than just a danish and 1/2 an artichoke today! So Kara Jean said, "Follow me, YA'LL!!! I know the way to Mexico!"



So of course...we followed her because who can turn THAT down?



Some of us enjoy elevators more than others....



Ahhh...that picture is just SOOOOO freakin funny!!

A look back at our BIG balcony up there on the bend (under the turret)-



More rehearsing-



Because when you've got talent, you should show it off!

We convinced someone to take our pic-



From left to right- Pam, Cammie, Ellen, Kara, Joan & Lonnie.

When we entered the park, the COOLEST thing happened by chance- sitting right there, waiting for some of their friends, were Joan's hubby's cousin, Mark, and his wife! Who Joan had never met before! Nice!





So we chatted for a few minutes, but really couldn't stay for long, because tonight we had an ADR at San Angel Inn! Up next!!

Thanks for the pics ellen, especially that one of Kara.
So is she the......"Fun One" of your group.
It looks to me you all like to have fun!
I think I have you all straight now. Just don't give me any tests.
I'm looking forward to when the cruise begins.
That should be awesome!

This picture is fantastic! It's always so hard to take a picture of a group or people without it looking like everyone just standing in a line. This is great.

BTW, I noticed Kara has a large camera on her shoulder and I know some of you other girls do too. Here's my question - when you go on rides, what do you do with it? I'd sooooo much rather just carry my camera and not the bag but I feel like I need to put it in the padded camera bag when we ride.

I love your TR's. How did I miss the start of this TR? Oh yeah, we were at BLT/VWL when you started. Forgive me.

Okay, I'm finally caught up with this TR. Fantastic as usual. I have graciously avoided commenting on the many talented tongues referenced in previous posts. But now that I'm properly motivated, I can go post a few pages to my TR from our trip 2 weeks ago. Wait, is that considered a comment?

Don't have time to quote and erase, etc. because I have to get in the shower, and the computer doesn't like showers, but I was at the elevator pic - your caption was perfect, Ellen!

It looks like Cinco de Drinko de Drinko de Mayo was a huge success! So fun to see all you ladies together - I am wondering if you will even REMEMBER the cruise! Looking forward to more!
